Welcome To Miami

Originally posted January 2017. Being in Miami is like being in a foreign country in which the primary language is Spanish. My mother, sister and I found ourselves in an unknown part of the city in search of Cuban food. The people barely spoke or even understood English as we were trying to order. IContinue reading “Welcome To Miami”

Toronto…First Experience

Originally posted December 2016. So I visited Toronto over the weekend for the first time. And I have to say, I expected more. The skyscrapers are beautifully blue as they reflect the hues of the sky. The people are ridiculously charming and friendly. Most pedestrians obeyed traffic laws. I was, for the most part, inContinue reading “Toronto…First Experience”

Manhattan Pt 3

Originally posted November 2016. Of course we checked out the bar scene and one thing we noticed was that none of the places we went to played current music. It was the oddest thing. It wasn’t like we researched these venues. It was all random and spur of the moment choices. And all played musicContinue reading “Manhattan Pt 3”

Manhattan Pt 2

Originally posted November 2016. I just want to put it out there that I met so many friendly people in New York. I honestly have yet to meet the mean New Yorkers people always talk about. Everyone was so nice and helpful, even when we asked the obnoxious “How do I get to there from here?”Continue reading “Manhattan Pt 2”

Manhattan Pt 1

This was originally posted November 2016. So I recently went on a trip to NYC. I have visited the city a few times before, but had never experienced it as a full grown independent adult. I went with two other friends and decided to see New York the way the locals do. We stayed awayContinue reading “Manhattan Pt 1”

I Love Autumn

This was originally posted October 2016. One of my favorite fall activities is going to an orchard to pick apples. I’ll be baking apple pie this season. A lot of cider mills also have corn mazes, hayrides, pumpkin patches and donuts (the number one reason I go to cider mills). Many of my Nigerian buddiesContinue reading “I Love Autumn”

The Heidelberg Project

This post was originally written in September 2016. With every city I find myself in, I make effort to explore every nook and cranny, from the safe cliche tourist attractions to the weird hidden gems. The Heidelberg Project is definitely one of the weirdest things I’ve seen in any city. Weird as in it involvesContinue reading “The Heidelberg Project”

The Comeback City

This post was originally written in September 2016. I don’t even know where or how to start when it comes to describing this city. I just moved here about a couple months ago and I’m really trying to familiarize myself with the area. It’s definitely been through a lot. There’s so much history. There’s theContinue reading “The Comeback City”

A Few Hours in Helen, GA

This post was originally written in July 2016. Took a trip to this old Bavarian town in the mountains of Georgia. Helen is one of Georgia’s secrets. It’s a cute small town with so many outdoor activities. I went specifically to go tubing down cool river and to visit one of the many waterfalls inContinue reading “A Few Hours in Helen, GA”
